I had the same problem and came to this solution:

- use pdf() to create a pdf file
- open PDF in Freehand,
        during open replace fonts: ZapfDingsbat for Zapf Dingsbat
- save as PDF or EPS and import this into word - bingo

The pdf files created by pdf() seem less than perfect - on my system 
(Mac OS X) Illustrator refuses open these files and in Preview or 
Word any axis label disappear. Maybe someone here knows enough about 
the PDF format to suggest how to fix this rather complicated path.
